BioShock 2 has a twist that “You Won’t See Coming”

2 min read


The first BioShock blew people’s minds with its surprise plot twists. If you haven’t played the original, and think I should have prefixed that with a spoiler warning, you’re probably on the wrong site. The second game apparently also features such a twist. That probably should have had a spoiler, I’m such a bastard.

Borrowing pages from the M. Night Shyamalan-a-rama-lama-ding-dong book of how to annoy your audience, 2K Marin’s Kent Hudson told IGN “There are definitely some things that I guarantee are going to surprise players, and in different ways than the first game.”

“It’s not the kind of thing where you look at it and say, ‘Well, the first game had this one twist so this game’s got to have the same twist.’ No; you’re not going to see it coming, what happens in this game, and it’s very different than how it worked out in BioShock 1.”

Unlike the first game, the ending isn’t going to be a singular mechanic.

“The end-games in BioShock 2, I think… are based on a deeper set of circumstances than just whether or not you harvested or saved these Little Sisters, and there’s also more depth to them and more ways they can go,” he said.

“It’s not just a ‘light ending dark ending’ kind of thing.”

Of course, it’s inevitable some idiot on the internet is going to spoil it for everyone before the game’s actually out.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
